position. our chief political correspondent chuck todd has been following this all day. >> reporter: good evening, well, last night, mitt romney turned the attack and brought it into the presidential campaign, despite being criticized even by fellow republicans, for the timing. he stood by that position and had discussion from the president. mitt romney, in jackson, a mere 15 minutes before the statement. >> it was wrong to stand by a statement with sympathy, to those who had breached our embassy. >> reporter: the statement romney referred to was issued by the u.s. embassy in cairo around 6:00 on tuesday morning, saying in part, the united states condemns the hurting of the religious muslims, the statement issued on the anniversary of the 9/11 attack was intended to distance the u.s. from the video that it angered protesters in libya and egypt and led to romney's first criticism, which then triggered this reaction from the obama administration. we are shocked that at a time of the death of one of our officers in libya, governor romney would choose to launch an attack. this morning,

tonight with chuck todd, our white house political correspondent. >> reporter: undeterred by a recent rocky stretch, mitt romney campaigned in colorado, insisting all is well with his campaign. >> we'll win, polls go up, some down. >> reporter: it is an aggressive attack, answering questions about whether or not the recent middle east uprising gave him any doubt about the arab spring. >> it is the right thing to do to align ourselves with democracy. and i was certain and continue to be certain that there will be bumps in the road. >> reporter: romney seized on the phrase "bumps in the road". >> we just had an ambassador killed, egypt, and the race for the president, ran is on the edge of problems. pakistan, i don't consider these bumps in the road. >> reporter: the white house dismissed the criticism. >> there is a rather certain desperate attempt to grasp it, words and in that case that is profound. >> reporter: the campaign unveiled a new attack, the tv ads, releasing mitt romney's political tax returns with the remark that 47% of middle americans don't pay taxes. >> he wouldn't rel

. >> kristen welker tonight. >>> we're joined by nbc's chief white house correspondent chuck todd, lay it out for us. how important are the debates in this particular election? >> at this point in time in the campaign, the stakes are enormous for mitt romney. he is behind, you can argue by how much he's behind, is it as bad as it looks in some polls in places like ohio or florida, but the bottom line is he's behind. he needs to come out basically not just even in the presidential, but it needs to serve as a way to fire up his republican troops, it's going to keep republican candidates from fleeing him, it's going to keep big money people from fleeing him. a decisive win by president obama will only add to the momentum at this crucial time when we have early voting and you'll see a whole bunch of candidates running down the ballot running from mitt romney. >> chuck todd in our washington newsroom, thanks. >>> tomorrow is the first monday in october, that mean tsz supreme court begins it's new term, the court expected to decide on cases involving affirmative action, specifically the role

the facts. we get our fact check tonight from our chief white house correspondent chuck todd. >> reporter: well, the president generally stuck to the facts last night. he did use a little budgetary slight of hand. >> i will use the money we're no longer spending on war to pay down our debt and put more people back to work. >> reporter: that so-called peace dividend doesn't exist. the wars in iraq and afghanistan were paid by borrowing and increasing the national debt. stopping the war doesn't free up any new money. this claim about obama's jobs record raised questions. >> here is another job score. president obama, plus 4.5 million. congressional republicans, zero. >> reporter: it's true since january 2010 the economy has gained over 4.5 million private sector jobs. but mr. obama had already been president for a year by then when the economy was hemorrhaging jobs. if you begin counting when he took office, it's a net gain of about 415,000 jobs. vice president joe biden actually got that right last night by including the time span. >> we have since created 4.5 million private sector jobs i

house correspondent and political director, chuck todd, in the d.c. news room. and long there were fundraisers by politicians there have been these small gatherings where remarks are made, supposed to stay in the room where these did not. >> reporter: that is right, you don't necessarily know, is the candidate saying what he truly believes or is he saying what he thinks the audience wants to hear, particularly at a place like a fundraiser where partisan red meat is had, not just rubber chicken, if you will, that they eat. but the videotape, our national correspondent acquired, you do get a sense, at least of what the campaign is thinking. mitt romney sounded like a pundit, saying there is 47% of the people going to be with the president. no matter what. but the part where he said they pay no income taxes, that they will be part of the government. he put out a statement, trying to deal with this a little ways. and it is a reminder president obama when he was candidate obama, had a similar incident where he was overheard talking about analyzing folks in the state of pennsylvania, say

correspondent chuck todd. good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian, the closest thing we get to a debate until the two meet, they made back-to-back appearances at a forum that was designed to speak to a crucial voting block, hispanics. it didn't take long for the president to find himself on the defensive, starting with immigration reform. >> a promise a promise, you promised that. and with all due respect, you didn't keep that promise. >> i am happy to take responsibility for the fact we didn't get it done, but i didn't make a promise that i would get everything done, 100 president, when i was elected president. >> reporter: later, he first listed immigration as a failure, at the top. and then said this. >> obviously, the fact we haven't been able to change the tone in washington is disappointing. i think that i have learned some lessons over the last four years. and the most important lesson i have learned is that you can't change washington from the inside. you can only change it from the outside. >> reporter: mr. obama did acknowledge his comments, and when he was asked the
